Ordinations - part III

The third in this small series of Ordination chasubles was prepared for a young deacon from Canada, who was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in May.
The ordinand asked for a chasuble in the Philip Neri style, which has become increasingly popular amongst younger clergy, who are desirous of a distinctly "Roman" style of vestment, but yet do not wish to adopt the later style of chasuble of 18th century Rome, sometimes referred to as "fiddleback".

A renaissance-style ivory and gold silk damask was chosen for the chasuble, ornamented with a brocade of burgundy and gold, outlined with a narrow galloon. The ornamentation is in the traditional Roman style of the TAU. The chasuble was fully lined.
